DESCRIPTION

This microscope digital camera provides high-quality 3.0 MP images at a $160 savings!

You'll be able to take excellent still photographs or capture stunning video at up to 3.0 megapixels resolution. This digital camera eyepiece produces bright, sharp images with very good contrast and accurate color. The camera easily replaces the eyepiece of your standard compound or stereo microscope in order to capture images. Just plug the camera into a USB 2.0 port on your computer, load the imaging software, and you are ready for microphotography.

The digital camera produces 2048 x 1536 pixel still images and video at up to 30 frames per second depending on resolution and computer performance. This camera has many excellent features, such as an RGB Bayer color filter, low 1.0 Lux minimum illumination, auto or manual exposure and white balance, and full-featured software.

In addition to the digital camera, you get eyepiece adapters to fit most microscopes, a calibration slide to use the measurement feature, a USB cable, and special ISCapture imaging software to view, capture, edit, measure, record, count, zoom, file, and manage still or moving microscope images. This is a professional-quality education tool for documenting the details you see with your microscope. See specifications tab for minimum computer requirements. Home Science Tools one-year warranty.
